§ (i) Transfer in the Colonial Service.
§ In the case of transfer of expatriate officers to other pensionable employment in the Colonial Service compensation will not be payable and the normal procedure covering such transfers will apply with the following modifications which are designed to facilitate the absorption of as many expatriate officers as possible in this way.
§ (a) An officer transferred to an appointment in the Colonial Service involving an immediate reduction in pensionable emoluments will receive a lump sum payment of five times the reduction.
§ If, however, he is within less than five years of the compulsory age of retirement in his new post, the payment will be reduced in proportion to the number of completed months by which his expectation of further service falls short of five years.
§ (b) An officer transferred to another appointment in the Colonial Service who is subsequently retired through no fault of his own in such circumstances that his pension is less than that which he would have received if he had retired on grounds of ill-health at the date of the termination of the Mandate shall have his pension made up to the latter figure.
§ (ii) Where an expatriate officer secures suitable permanent re-employment in public or semi-public service or in socialised industry, with superannuation benefits, he will not be entitled to special compensation benefits other than the disturbance grant, but will receive the normal statutory and contractual benefits due to him in respect of the abolition of his Palestine appointment. In the case of such re-employment of British Police in addition to the disturbance grant the special gratuity payable under I (iv) above will not be refundable.
§ (iii) Where a non-expatriate officer is re-employed by a successor authority on the same terms and with the same rights as those enjoyed by him under the Mandatory Government or where a definite 25W offer of such re-employment has been made, he will not be entitled to any special compensation as distinct from the statutory or contractual benefits due to him provided that in every case the Mandatory Government reserves the right to pay compensation if it is satisfied that the merits of the case justify such payment.
§ NOTE.—Examples of the benefits payable to expatriate officers under I (i)-(iv) are given in Appendix III.
